After a bout of vomiting last night and a headache, Amritsar was certainly not ready for school this morning.
Our nanny Sindy’s mum, Sonia is in hospital – we wish her well, but a broken hip bone cannot be an easy thing to deal with, both for her, Sonia or her children.
Back to today and Amritsar’s being at home. Do you know, it is her first sick day in two years of school! We hung out, watched the television and had some tablet time as well as me making 2kg of applesauce (sterilised and jarred) and 500g of pectin (bagged and frozen) for Dadda’s Jam. A new combo coming next week!!!
She felt rather special having stayed at home with Dadda today! She wasn’t sick at all in fact at any part of the day! She enjoyed homemade chicken noodle soup (as did I) that I rustled up with the carcass from Dadday and Dadda’s Sunday evening roast chicken dinner (phew) and did I mention that there was good dose of Netflix this afternoon!
With school, we emphasised the headache as she really was as right as rain throughout the entire day, she really is a fighter and fully ready and rearing to go tomorrow morning.
It was nice to just hang out. She had a smile on her face for most of the day – a bit surreal really.
Fighting fit and back to the rat race tomorrow.
I cooked a Mutter this afternoon (and rice) for their dinner tonight, as Aaliyah had asked specifically for it. It’s a family favourite as you might remember. But then I heard that they all had a mild chicken korma at school for lunch. So the pea curry was bagged up, ready for serving tomorrow night and they all enjoyed ham and chicken mayonnaise sandwiches on sourdough.
It is nice to spend one on one with a family member, even if it is just for the day! It’s a very hectic household you see…
